Grrrrr!!!!
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Grrrrr!!!!
Grrrrr!!!!
I really am interested in hearing from you about the quality of this photo I shot of my Maine Coon cat with my new 85mm camera. He was just awakening from napping and in the midst of him stretching and yawning I was able to snap this. It was shot at 2PM with lighting from a window facing west in the background, f/1.8, ISO 1000, 1/100, AWB, handheld. I'm really hoping to learn from your feedback. Thanks so much.

    The best critique of your image has just come from the BP Judges. There is nothing wrong with this photo and everything right with this photo. It's just delightful. Congratulations on your selection as a finalist and good luck in the next round.

Well, thank you very much! I wasn't looking to get judged... Just some feedback on what I could do better, what I should've/shouldn't have done, etc. as I continue to practice my craft. I thank you!
